Bad start to the New Year due to a friend being taken into hospital, she will be fine but its never nice in hospitals. This afternoon I took the train over to Macclesfield to visit her in Macclesfield General Hospital. I enjoyed the walk back to the station from the hospital and took a few evening photos, the lighting was very bad (cloudy, overcast and going dark) but I managed to grab this photo, I was experimenting with 'depth of field' in the above photo. The foreground (the statue) is sharp but the background (the clock and church) are out of focus. I made it a black & white image to give a more dramatic feel. The church is St Michael & All Angels (Church of England) in the centre of Macclesfield.
